Simple Things

There are few sights as beautiful as a moonless, cloudless sky early in the morning before the sun has burst on to the horizon.

Getting Through the Pain

Who among us has not dealt with horrible pain or loss? Some seem to have had more than their fair share. Many people grew up in homes where abuse was normal.

In less than two months, we will be going into our Week of Revival. Our “week” actually consists of Sunday morning and evening and three week nights, but we still consider it a week.

Out of the Routine?

Occasionally we get out of our routine and for that period of time, we feel just a little off! Metaphorically speaking, of course! Such has been the case this past week and a half since we’ve made adjustments regarding bringing our son home. We’re not complaining, mind you! These have been some of the happiest… Read More »

How Far have We Sunk?

Is it me, or has the world turned upside-down? Last week, the Democratic governor of Virginia, Ralph Northam, stated it would be OK for a mother to deliver her baby and then decide with her doctor if she wants that baby to live. Her baby would be “kept comfortable,” while the mom discussed the “situation”… Read More »
